Don Cheadle could play Miles Davis in biopic

Don Cheadle could play Miles Davis in biopic

Mon Mar 13, 10:54 PM ET



Jazz legend Miles Davis, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday, may be resurrected in a biographical movie with Don Cheadle playing the lead, Davis' family said.

His nephew, Vince Wilburn, told reporters after Davis was inducted into the Hall of Fame that Sony Pictures was working on a movie as well as planning several CDs to celebrate what would have been Davis' 80th birthday later this year.

"People are submitting scripts to Sony Pictures," Wilburn said. "A few names have come up (to play Davis) but Don Cheadle's name keeps coming up," he said.

Wilburn said the movie could touch on Davis' private life as well as his career as a groundbreaking jazz musician who later branched out into music that crossed over into rock and funk.

Wilburn said a possible director for the film was Antoine Fuqua, best known for "Training Day," the movie for which Denzel Washington won a best-acting Oscar in 2002.

Davis' son, Gregory, recalled touring with his father, who died of a stroke in 1991, and said he would have been proud of the honor bestowed on him at Monday's gala ceremony in New York's Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

"We're very proud because this man's ancestors came out of slavery and he's an international icon all over the world and America should be proud of him," he said.

Asked about Davis' reputation as a tough and difficult man, his daughter, Cheryl, conceded that image was accurate at times but said there was another side to him. "He wasn't an angry black man ... he was very humorous. ... He lived life to the fullest and he absorbed cultures from all over the world."

I hope this is true and it's a bumping script so Don can finally get his Oscar.

I'm with you there, Fair Maiden. As good as Jamie Foxx was in "Ray" (and HE WAS GOOD), I still say that Mr. Cheadle should have won for "Hotel Rwanda". Also, how did he not get nominated for "Crash"?

I really like the sound of this (as you might guess from my avatar )

Miles Davis = , and a movie like this will allow more people to discover and appreciate his music

I don't know much about his music but you are right if it gets done right it will introduce him to many many many new fans. I'm interested to see his relationship with Cicely Tyson.

Good call on Isaiah Washington...and he actually plays the trumpet too. However, I'd pay $ to see Don Cheadle in anything, so I'd buy him too.
